More information required (as almost always):
- type and model of maxhine?
- dmesg output from 4.11 (or 4.10)
- describe in detail your buildworld problems (and any other problems),
specifically any error messages you might get.

Have you ruled out hardware problems? By running memtest86 for example?
(Yes, I know that 4.10 installs ok. That proves almost nothing.)

People on this list can probably suggest things to try that will help
you towards that goal, but so far I haven't found any mind readers on
this list. You will have to give us all information in the normal way.

And you are not running out of space during buildworld?
